Validation Reports

Technology Brief

A Technology Brief is a 4 page document with a focused description of our client’s product or service and our analysis of how it fits in the market. Technology Briefs are especially well suited to explaining innovative solutions to the problems faced by IT professionals. Longer technology reports are also available if desired.

Technology Validation Brief

Technology Validation Briefs are 4-6 page reports based on testing of your products in our labs that concentrate on specific use cases.  Four page validation briefs generally concentrate on how a sponsor’s product solves a single problem for the users. They present the problem, the vendor’s solution and the results of testing in the lab. The 6 page version would add the product pages for the sponsor’s product to the brief. Four page briefs can be formatted for PDF delivery as 4 letter size pages or as an 11x17 sheet folded down to letter size.  This tabloid format allows more freedom for formatting on the “inside”.  Similarly 6 page briefs can be formatted to be printed on in 11x25½ gatefold format. HyperIP Enables vMotion over WAN is a good example of a Technology Validation Brief.

Technology Validation Report

Technology Validation Reports are more in depth explorations of a product or technology. Where Technology Validation Briefs concentrate on a single aspect of a product or use case validation reports explore the product as a whole including multiple sets of test results that illustrate the benefits of the product in multiple ways.  Technology validation reports are typically somewhere between 8 and 16 pages in length. Overland SnapSAN S2000 – Storage for Virtual Servers is a good example of a Technology Validation Report.

Competitive Reports

Competitive reports, which can be based on lab testing or exclusively on research, compare a sponsor’s product directly to one or more competitors.  Creating the kind of impartial competitive analysis everyone can be proud of is a complex and intricate endeavor.
